State politics

Jim over at Rittenhouse Review notes that the PA Democrats have found an opponent for Arlen Specter in the 2004 Senate race. Rep. Joseph M. Hoeffel has thrown his hat into the ring. According to this morning's Post-Gazette, he has had a somewhat checkered political career, but Specter appears to be facing a bruising primary battle from the far right, so could be quite vulnerable come next fall.
